A Realistic Fall season

Now I'm famous for being a procrastinator, for making lists, giving myself unattainable goals, thinking I can accomplish about 75% more than I actually can, and also being extremely over confident in my crafting/cooking capabilities.  

And this fall I don't want to be like that.  I want to enjoy it with my husband.  I want to have fun and create things for myself and my family to really enjoy.  To my way of thinking the process should be just as enjoyable as the finished product.

And I'm going to just say it Pinterest does not help me stay within my realm of possibilities.  I have to repeatedly give myself a Pinterest Reality Check *what this means is I call my husband in and show him my board and I ask him "do you think I'll actually do this?" and bless his heart he sits with me through the whole board and is honest in ways only a husband can be LOL* so I decided to make an Autumn To Do Board it has 34 pins on it *believe me it took me 4 or 5 tries to knock it down that much* that are all husband approved, I did this because I wanted to be realistic...what can I afford to do?  What do I actually want to do?  What am I capable of doing?  And I think I did a pretty good job!  It's so easy to just make those pinterest boards full of dreams, wishes, some days, and even just wants.  But it's a lot harder to be honest with yourself and buckle down and do even a fraction of the stuff you've pinned.  So I don't think 34 things is that crazy.  I've actually already done a few of those things.  At the end of November I want to post a list of the things I accomplished and see how I did.  I'm also interested to see if this is a less stressful season.  Only time will tell I guess!  This year I also created a little Fall Bucket List!

Do you have problems doing things you pin on pinterest or are you completely above and beyond me lol?  Do you ever find yourself over whelmed by what you want to do versus what you can actually do?  Let me know!  ...Or am I the only one out there with this problem lol?

I hear you on the thinking that you can accomplish a lot more than you can. I am very unrealistic about time. Always think I can get much more done in an hour than is humanely possible. Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better. Hope you don't mind if I follow along!
